David Johnson (wrist) expected to miss significant time, report says

David Johnson RB

Johnson reportedly dislocated his wrist, and based on what head coach Bruce Arians had to say to reporters today, the Cardinals are probably going to be without Johnson for quite some time.

Chris Johnson comes back to the team after originally not making the 53-man roster.

The 25-year-old got a second opinion on his wrist injury on Monday, which backed up the original diagnosis, as the team feared.

Johnson will have surgery this week and is expected to miss the next two-to-three months.

TEMPE, Ariz. - The Arizona Cardinals are turning to a familiar face to fill the void left by injured running back David Johnson. Johnson returned for the first play of Arizona's next offensive series and fumbled on his first carry. He played in one game last season with the Cardinals after spending the first 14 weeks of the season on the team's practice squad.

GBP Rallies as UK Inflation Rises More Than Expected
TUC general secretary Frances O'Grady said: "The cost of living squeeze continues, with rising inflation outpacing wages". The August inflation number is the highest since March 2017, when it was recorded at 3.89 per cent.

The lack of quality depth at the running back position adds to the significance of the Johnson injury. ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports that the MRI will determine if he will miss "a few weeks" compared to "half the season or more". In his 10th National Football League season, he needs 463 yards to top 10,000 for his career.

Arizona Cardinals star running back David Johnson, Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Allen Robinson, and San Francisco 49ers rookie linebacker Reuben Foster were just some of the notable players to leave the field in Week 1 with injuries.

The coach had planned to get David Johnson 30 touches a game. Robinson, who made the Pro Bowl in 2015 following a 1,400-yard, 14-touchdown campaign, is entering the final year of his rookie contract and looking for a long-term deal.

The Dolphins will open their season Sunday at the Los Angeles Chargers.
